Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was alleged to have paid digital agency Orb Solutions RM2 million to handle his social media accounts and public image.
He now faces 25 charges of abuse of power and money laundering involving billions of the state-owned fund in this trial alone.
"He used that position and that of Prime Minister and Minister of Finance to do certain acts and to exert influence over the board ... to carry out certain abnormal transactions with undue haste", Sri Ram said. "And if you place Jho Low before a mirror, you will see the accused", Mr Gopal said.
He maintained his client had been misled by Jho Low, a fugitive whose whereabouts are now unknown.
"The accused took active steps to evade justice", he added.
Rafidah is expected to tender 177 documents related to 1MDB, Tanjong Energy Sdn Bhd, Mastika Legenda Sdn Bhd and Genting Sanyen Sdn Bhd, which will feature prominently in the course of the prosecution's case.

Opening the trial on Wednesday, prosecutor Gopal Sri Ram accused Mr Najib of being a key player in the scandal.
The case relates to a crucial part of the 1MDB saga.
After the scandal first broke in 2015, he said Najib and Low used fake letters and checks to pretend the $681 million channelled into Najib's bank accounts were largely a donation from an Arab prince.
Najib "honestly believed" it was a Saudi donation as he had met the Saudi king and was promised the money, Shafee said.
The prosecution called 57 witnesses during the first stage of the trial and the court heard evidence about the lavish lifestyle enjoyed by Najib and his widely reviled wife, Rosmah Mansor, after allegedly looting state coffers. He is accused of transferring 2.3bn ringgit (£440m) out of 1MDB - nearly one-quarter of its funds. A ruling will be announced in November.

He was involved in (1MDB predecessor) Terengganu Investment Authority and later in 1MDB.
The bank has vowed to fight the charges.
